Artist Crystal DiPietro paints a sweeping view of a western ravine gloriously gleaming in the sun's warmth. "At the bottom of a beautiful desert canyon, I was surprised and thrilled to discover a lovely field of desert poppies in full spring bloom," shares Crystal. She paints them like a sea of yellow, brightening the harsh desert terrain and offering a feeling of hope. The golden blooms create a compelling contrast against the neutral earthy tones of the landscape.

Crystal DiPietro

Las Vegas, Nevada

Artist Crystal DiPietro paints majestic sceneries inspired by her personal trips to beautiful untamed places. She creates landscapes as rugged and dramatic—setting her style apart from the usual soft and delicate perspectives of the genre. Crystal pursued art school in Washington, D.C., where she got to go behind the scenes in major galleries and explore hiking, a huge source of her work inspiration. She composes her work with bold natural views in unique angles, vibrant colors, and loose brushstrokes. With her own photography used as a reference, Crystal expresses the details in her paintings slowly, in layers, the same way a photograph develops. “I intend to show a subtle beauty where the viewer may never have thought to look,” says Crystal. Her work hovers between capturing a brief dream and a contemplative impression of the scene. She achieves this by allowing viewers to come away with new respect and appreciation for the worlds around them.

We are so enthralled with Crystal DiPietro's work, the detail, the vistas she creates, the composition of this piece. We lost our home in the Marshall Fires and this was one of the first things we purchased in anticipation of rebuilding. It has become a great reminder of the highs and lows and the rocky places in life--as well as the beautiful places these places may become in journey. Thank you for creating such a wonderful piece of art that will become a heirloom in our family.
